DrivingSales created the Innovation Cup Awards, presented annually at the DrivingSales Executive Summit, to recognize solutions introduced or enhanced in 2011 whose innovative approaches have produced significant results for automobile dealers.
Thomas Jung stated, “Our dealers have had great success using our narrowcasting solution which resizes live TV to 85% of the screen and generates franchise specific service and sales advertising via an Internet connection on the remaining 15%. Our dealers use the system in their waiting areas, showrooms, shopping malls and restaurants to display new car specials, used car inventory,F&I products, and fixed operation offers. Our goal is clear – increase sales and improve CSI. It is an honor to be recognized by automotive dealers as a finalist in The Innovation Cup.”
“The DrivingSales Executive Summit is designed to inspire dealers to push the envelope on innovation and to help them uncover, collaboratively, the actionable solutions and strategies that will move their dealerships forward,” said DrivingSales Founder and CEO Jared Hamilton. “The Innovation Cup, a centerpiece of the DSES, raises awareness of the vendor solutions that are moving the needle forward in dealerships across the country by allowing those who know best – auto dealers – to decide the finalists and winner; Clearly AdVantageTec is already making its mark with dealers, and we look forward to sharing AdVantageTec’s unique solution with the hundreds of progressive dealers.”
Each solution will also be profiled at DrivingSales.com, in the DrivingSales newsletter, and will be featured in a video interview at DrivingSalesTV.
